Kamala Harris drops out of US presidential race with ‘deep regret’

US senator Kamala Harris has expressed her “deep regret” after dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The California senator has ended her campaign after failing to gain support in key states despite an early rise in the polls, according to a campaign source.

Ms Harris said a lack of “financial resources” was responsible for her decision to drop out of the race.

The senator published an article on Medium explaining her decision to step down, writing: “I’ve taken stock and looked at this from every angle, and over the last few days have come to one of the hardest decisions of my life.

“My campaign for president simply doesn’t have the financial resources we need to continue.
